What size pot is best to grow hot peppers in

Zone Sun City, AZ | iddy1 added on May 11, 2015 | Answered

First time for me to try and grow peppers in a pot. I will be starting it from seed and transferring the sprouting to the pot. The pot will be kept outside. But I don't know how to make sure that the pot is not too big or too small. I'd rather not have to transplant from one to small. Any guidance you can give me is greatly appreciated.

Based on my research, it looks like a 5 gallon pot is the recommended standard.
